Photographer's Note

The Chapel of Karl Scheibler, located in the Evangelical-Augsburg part of the Old Cemetery on Ogrodowa Street 43, is a major architectural work in old Łódź, Poland.

Łódź is known for its architectural monuments which form a record of the city's heritage, particularly its unique nineteenth century development. The chapel and mausoleum of Karol Scheibler are noted examples of architecture from this period.

The architecture of the building was based on French and German Gothic Revival architecture. The chapel has a slender contour, finished with openwork masonry towers.

The chapel's shape and quality are recognised as in keeping with the masterpieces of Neo-Gothic architecture. The quality of the Łódź mausoleum is said to be such that there are only a handful of buildings in Europe of equal artistic quality. (from Wiki).
